Ok, I have been trying NOT to write this post, because I know it is healthiest to buy your dress and just not obsess about the decision. I also didn’t even care that much about “the” dress until after I bought a dress.
But I can’t help myself! I’m sorry; I just need to vent/get some reassurance or honesty.
Tonight, I got a message that my dress has come in. I’m so scared to pick it up. I’m worried that maybe I didn’t choose a good enough/flattering dress. I’m self-conscious about my chest, and don’t feel like this dress does anything to help it out. I’m also scared it won’t fit because I was between sizes and they STRONGLY recommended that I order down, which I’ve since learned is very risky, especially since I didn’t believe their measurements (smaller than what i know them to be). However, after ordering the dress, I amped up my exercise and have so far lost 1″ on my hips.
All of this said, I have over ten months until the wedding (I bought early on purpose, because my school years are extremely busy and I wanted to have this out of the way). The wedding is a casual garden ceremony with just family and bbq.
So, HONESTLY, bees, what do you think of the fit of this dress on me? Also, what types of things should I look for when I pick up my dress? Do I examine it BEFORE paying the final balance? I’m including a picture of the profile, which I took letting things “hang out” to see how bad that would be…

Oh girl – I LOVE that dress!!! And…it looks GREAT on you! I can’t tell at all that you are letting things “hang out”. It really does look good. Don’t worry about it at all!

i felt exactly how you did when my dress came in…. i really didn’t like it though and ended up selling it and getting a new one :ox
your dress is pretty… it’s simple and elegant- very flattering. There isn’t really too much to inspect when it comes in, just make sure it’s the size and color you ordered, go over the dress a few times to look for snags or threads. Zip it up a few times when your not in it to make sure teh zipper works properly and make sure the tags are still attached (this lets you knwo they didn’t send in a sample or returned gown).

This dress looks amazing on you! Its super figure flattering! You can always wear ‘chicken cutlets’ if you think you need some help in the chest area…those things are amazing! But honestly, you don’t need them.

The dress looks amazing, honest! And if that was a sample you tried on, keep in mind that a LOT of other girls of all shapes and sizes have tried it on too so it’ll be stretched out and less flattering. When you try on your dress for the first time it’ll stretch out from your body heat/sweat in all the right places. I had the exact same dilemna with being between sizes and worrying that the sample I’d tried on didn’t flatter my small chest. The dress can be let out in all the right places and you can add cups or silicone cutlets (they sell them everywhere..even wal mart!) to fill out the top. It will all work out! 🙂

You definitely did not make a mistake! You are slim & fit…I know tons of ladies who would kill for your “hanging out” photo 🙂
As for what to look for…I haven’t had any dress buying experiences (for myself or others) so I’m no help, sorry!

You guys are so sweet; thank you for your kind words. I’m trying not to let myself stress anymore until I actually get the dress. I know you all know what it’s like to freak out about this stuff
